If your grandmother was not married when she died, her two children will split her estate. Your uncle's four children will divide his half of the estate among themselves. Your mother will receive her half of the estate. This assumes your grandmother did not have a will.

The executor is responsible for administering the will and distributing property pursuant to the will after paying off the debts of the estate. Pension and life insurance would not likely pass through the probate process, as you can typically assign death beneficiaries for those. You can contact...Read more »
